Custom Drug Test Policy

Custom Drug Test Policy

A written Drug Test Policy for companies with USDOT regulated personnel is a federal requirement.

A written Drug Test Policy for companies without any USDOT regulated personnel is strongly recommended - it helps to protect your company legally!

 

A drug test policy will be custom-written for you by OHS, Inc. for as little as $275!

NOTE: If you can find an attorney that is qualified to write a drug test policy, they will likely charge you $1,500 - $2,700!

COST OF A CUSTOM-WRITTEN COMPANY DRUG TEST POLICY (DOT or NON-DOT):

$550 - if another provider is now or will be managing your company's drug testing program.

$275 - if OHS, Inc. is now or will be managing your company's drug testing program.
